We often get asked how an animal can be sponsored and it’s always been something that’s difficult for us to work out .. eg how much does it cost to feed a dog - that kind of thing. We’re really excited about offering the following sponsorship idea. For $15 per month you can sponsor a dog for a monthly tablet of Sentinel Spectrum. This covers heartworm, all worms and flea treatment.
To some of you this may sound as not very important, but just in time saving for volunteers it is HUGE, and the health benefits for the dogs are too numerous to mention. We’ve implemented a reminder system per dog to minimise work for the shelter manager and we can’t wait to get this idea underway. If you wish you can remain anonymous, or your name can appear on the website and facebook. When the dog is rehomed you'll be contacted and asked if you'd like to transfer your sponsorship to another dog.
Now all we need is you ..... can you help make our life easier and help with the health of our dogs for $15 per month?

PETITION - MAKE THE RSPCA ACCOUNTABLE AND ANSWERABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS
RALLY 15.4.2013 - MAKE THE RSPCA ACCOUNTABLE AND ANSWERABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS
Firstly - we're volunteers, not paid staff. If you come to the shelter you wont see a reception desk with staff waiting for your visit. You're more likely to meet Lola out in the kennels, completely run off her feet trying to get everything done.
If you ring and we don't answer the phone the please leave a message. Someone will get back to you, usually within 24 hours.
If you email and we don't respond immediately it's because we also have paid full time jobs - once again we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
The Moorook Animal Shelter is a non profit / non kill organisation established in 1999.
Our shelter has made such a difference for so many of the unwanted dogs in our local area. More and more dogs are being rehomed into Adelaide, and the best thing you can do to help us is let your friends, neighbours, relatives and workmates know that we exist.
We may not be able to save every dog, but you can help us try, as every one of them deserves a place to call home.
Whether you choose to view your next best friend on here, or on Facebook, I'm sure you'll find the Moorook Animal Shelter has an dog to suit everyone.

We are very proud to offer this 10-day board and train option for any dog with the K - P.U.P. note on the bottom of their description. In partnership with Bob Yeo of Canine Detection Service - a trainer with over 20 years who is a SA Government Accredited Dog Trainer - we are pleased to being giving some of our overlooked residents this chance at getting a ‘Paw-Up’. For $215 you will be adopting a desexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated and professionally trained dog; you will get progress updates throughout this training period and upon collection will spend time and get advice from Bob on how to be the best dog owner you can be.
Paws-Up was devised because a lot of people are hesitant to take on a dog term resident for fear they may have becoming institutionalised by being in the shelter environment for a longer than average period of time. Dogs don’t have such reservations; they live in the moment, but a little extra education never hurt anyone.
Dogs chosen by to be in K - P.U.P. are eligible by private sponsorship - if you feel you would like to help a dog at the shelter by becoming a K - P.U.P. Sponsor; please contact us. We are happy to keep your details private if you prefer or you may choose to lead by example. The choice of which dog you sponsor is totally up to you.
